2 DAF Whitewater Systems The DAF Whitewater System technology was developed by Water Resources utilizing the Patented Shearforce technology. The heart of the system is the ability of the Shearforce Pumps to pump gas/air which has been injected into the suction of the pumps. The unique Shearforce design allows the pump to pump gas/air without concern for solids or cavitation found in other pumps capable of pumping gas.Treatment chemicals are injected into the Pipe Flocculator through multiple ports to achieve maximum liquid / solids separation under easily controlled process conditions.
3 DAF Whitewater Systems The injection of air results in Whitewater which is pumped through the innovative Pipe Flocculator. The Whitewater contains millions of microscopic tiny air bubbles. Extensive laboratory evaluation on the size of the air bubble and effective liquid-solid separation, overwhelming demonstrate that the smaller the air bubble, the more efficient the separation.The Patented Shearforce Pumps can pump up to 35 % gas/air producing 93 – 100% solubility with air bubbles less then 30 microns in size.
4 DAF Whitewater Systems In the Pipe Flocculator, the microscopic air bubbles attached themselves to the chemically flocculated waste particles, making them strongly buoyant. The Pipe Flocculator inlet distribution header provides a uniform flow of the flocculated wastewater into the DAF Whitewater System flotation cell.The buoyant floc particles rise rapidly to the surface and are skimmed into the float solids sump, ready to dewater. The clean treated water is discharged.Because of the rapid rise velocity of the buoyant floc particles the required surface area of the flotation cell is greatly reduced. Flow rates of 4-6 gpm per square foot surface area are easily achieved.
5 DAF Whitewater Systems The highly effective mixing energy created by the injection of Whitewater into the Pipe Flocculator greatly reduces the time required for flocculation of the wastewater. This highly innovative process reduces chemical usage and eliminates the need for chemical reaction tanks and mixers which results in 1/3 the foot print of other systems.Because the DAF Whitewater system treated water is of a higher quality then normally obtained from conventional flotation systems, the water can be polished and reused in the plant process.
6 DAF Whitewater Systems Most conventional floatation systems can be upgraded to a DAF Whitewater System process by installing a Shearforce Pump, air injection system, and a Pipe Flocculator to replace chemical reaction thanks and mixers. Results are high flow rates, high quality treated water and low chemical costs.Typical Results of Whitewater DAF SystemCharacteristic Untreated Treated(mg/L) (mg/L)phTSSOil & GreaseBODCODCadmium <0.02Chromium <0.02Copper <0.10Lead <0.10Nickel <0.05Zinc <0.03
7 Shearforce Pumps – w/ Patented Shearforce Rotors Patent No. US 6,752,597 B2Shearforce rotors do not have vanes and thus have specific advantages over conventional impellers and are better suited for certain applications.These applications include entrained gas (air induced fluids), high viscosity fluids and fluids with high solid content.The rotor utilizes the fluid viscosity to generate the necessary forces required to sustain a pressure differential and corresponding flow.Shearforce Ltd.
